Eurocom Corporation (www.eurocom.com), a leading developer of high performance Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers, award winning Panther series super computer laptop is fully customizable to allow users to choose the exact components to meet their needs whether it is for server, workstation or gaming applications.

The Panther series is comprised of the Panther 4.0 Mobile Workstation, the Panther 5D 3D enabled system and the Panther 5SE Mobile Server Edition. Depending on the configuration chosen, the Panther can be optimized for a wide variety or professional or enthusiast level applications. Eurocom utilized a high performance desktop replacement chassis with the highest quality mobile components such as Intel Xeon E5 and Intel Core i7, NVIDIA Quadro K5000M, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M and AMD Radeon HD 7970M graphics as well as storage options from Samsung 840 Pro series and Intel 520 Intel S3700 Solid State Drives that are able to support server class operation as well as professional workstation operation.

At the 2013 Intel Solutions Summit, the EUROCOM Panther was recently awarded the “Form Factor Solution Innovation Award”, which is given to the company who delivers the most innovative mobile solution based on Intel Technology to meet our customers’ demands for mobility.

Mobile Workstation
Driving the EUROCOM Panther series of Mobile Workstation is a complete line of 6 core and 8 core Intel Xeon Processors based on the LGA 2011 processor socket, up to Intel Xeon E5-2690 Processor. As well as the Intel Core i7 line of processors, up to Intel Core i7-3970X. These high-performance CPUs allow users to simultaneously run multiple applications at the same time -- all with increased performance. Up to 32GB of superfast DDR3-1600 SODIMM memory is also supported via four channels in all Eurocom Workstations to increased performance during on the go deployment.

The EUROCOM Panther supports a full line of professional graphics from NVIDIA including Quadro K5000M, K4000M, K3000M and K2000M to give customers four distinct levels of professional grade performance. NVIDIA Quadro GPUs are designed and built to provide leading performance, reliability, compatibility and stability with applications like Adobe Creative Suite 5.5, Autodesk 3DS Max, Autodesk Autocad 2011, Autodesk Inventor 2012, Avid Media Composer, Dassault Catia, Dassault Solidworks, Siemens X, ANSYS, MATLAB, Dassault Simulia, among many others. NVIDIA Quadro K5000M is ideal for professional applications such as video editing, color correction, compositing, design visualization and GPU-accelerated ray-traced 3D rendering.

Solid State, Hybrid, or Enterprise level drives with RAID capability are supported in the Panther. With support for up to four 1 terabyte storage drives, the Panther is able to offer 4 terabytes of storage. RAID 0,1,5,10 capability gives users the ultimate in performance or redundancy. SSD drives in particular will benefit from the use of the SATA 6Gbp/s standard available on 2 ports, eliminating bottlenecks for the fastest SSD drives. For the most demanding customers Eurocom offers the highest performance Intel and Micron SSDs including the new Intel enterprise SATA 6Gb/s Intel DC S3700 800GB HET MLC SSD.

Mobile Server
The EUROCOM Panther 5.0 Server Edition is the 4th generation of Eurocom Mobile Server powered by Intel Xeon processors, continuing the tradition of highly capable, stable, upgradeable and expandable server grade hardware from Eurocom.

The Panther 5SE mobile server does not replace conventional server systems. In environments where space, weight, mobility, and energy bottlenecks don’t exist, rack mount and tower servers remain the most cost-effective and highest density options. It addresses emerging needs and opens up new opportunities throughout the market.

The EUROCOM Panther 5.0 SE provides fast deployment right out of the box, combined with easy relocation. The ability to hand carry the system make the EUROCOM Panther 5.0 SE an extremely easy system to travel with while providing server capabilities.

Unlike conventional servers the EUROCOM Panther 5.0 Server Edition weighs just 12lbs/5.5kg, measures just 419(W)x286(D)x57.9-62.1(H)mm (16.76x11.44x2.31-2.48inch) and is equipped with an integrated keyboard, 17.3” LCD Display, touch pad and Uninterruptible Power Supply (Battery Pack) making the Panther 5.0 perfect for on-the-go deployment.

Network Managers, software and/or database developers, training centers, military personnel, law enforcement, forensics, emergency relief and service organizations that require flexibility of deployment and powerful computing on-the-go, are the core beneficiaries of Eurocom Mobile Server technology

“The Panther 5.0 SE is perfect for organizations relocating operations that require fast network setup to eliminate staff downtime. To startup companies having an entire network server, for 20-50 users, running in one box. We also have customers who use our mobile servers as backup in case their production server goes down, they can load the virtual machine on to the mobile server for production purposes while the main production server is down. The more professionals we speak with about the Panther 5.0 SE the more creative and beneficial uses we see” Mark Bialic, Eurocom President.

3D System
Powering the three dimensional displays of the EUROCOM Panther 5D are an optional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M in single or dual operation or NVIDIA Quadro K5000M graphics. Professional 3D capability is offered by combining 3D Vision glasses, a built in emitter, a 120hz panel and 3D capable software.

The EUROCOM Panther 5D supports Quad Buffering 3D technology, via supported NVIDIA Quadro and GeForce cards to enhance their capability and professional deployment. Supporting 3D technology provides users with an immersive 3D experience in games, movies, and any content with built in depth. Eurocom Mobile 3D workstations fit seamlessly into a 3D ecosystem complete with 3D scanners, 3D printers and 3D software applications.

Eurocom 3D on the go Workstations provide opportunities for professionals to operate Virtual Labs on the Go, 3D Scanning on the Go and Engineering and Design on the Go. Having 3D capability with the professional grade hardware offered by Eurocom’s line of 3D Workstations allows for design of new products anywhere in the world while offering engineering capacity onsite, anywhere, being able to reduce time to market, downtime and development costs of projects.
